Expert Gasket & Seal’s die-less Flashcut gasket fabrication utilizes a computer controlled high speed knife cutting system that produces precise, close tolerance parts on non-metallic materials without the need for tooling. This system is particularly good for prototype gaskets
, short runs
, narrow widths
, and thicker materials
The Flashcut system produces a part from a common .dxf CAD file. You may supply your .dxf file, or we can create one for you. Dimensional changes to a part can simply be made by revising the .dxf file or creating a new one. No tooling is required.
The Flashcut will fabricate parts without the “hourglass” distortion to the sides that is typical of die-cut parts. This benefit is most visible on thicker, and also very soft materials.
The Flashcut produces parts to tighter tolerances than can be achieved with die-cutting. RMA class 1 or tighter tolerances are a reality on sponge and other soft materials where such precision is required.
